Tips for Packing Up Delicate Items

Your safety of your belongings is important to our professionals at OnDemand Storage, which is why we think it’s important that your delicate items are packed safely. We offer an additional service cost to pack up your items but if you want to do it yourself, read on for some great tips!

Prepare in Advance

If you are going to store fine china or expensive crystal, you will definitely want to tackle these items first. Since it takes time to carefully wrap and pack delicate items, you will not want to leave this task as a last minute packing when our movers arrive.

Get the Right Tools

You will need boxes of various sizes, packing paper, bubble wrap, pliable cardboard, scissors, and packing tape. You can even get some soft cloth or packaging peanuts as an extra layer to wrap your items in. An important thing to note is that if you are using bubble wrap, you will need to consider how heavy the item you are packing it with is. During the moving, it is possible that the heavy items can pop the bubbles and make the wrap less effective.

Give Yourself Space

Packing your belongings can definitely get messy and unorganized but if you are storing expensive, fragile items, organization is essential. You will want a clear space where you can safely rest your items, without risk of them falling, having something fall on them, or having you trip on them!

Mark Your Boxes Clearly

This tip is important for any type of item you are storing; whether it is fragile or not. Use huge labels, vibrant marker colors, and place protective tape over your label to ensure it does not rip, get wiped off, or dirty.
